This is the biggest album I made so far, with covers measuring 8 1/4 ” x 10 3/4 “, a 4 1/4 ” spine and 7 1/2 ” x 10 ” pages. I followed a tutorial by Lunar Sun Creations tutorial and adapted it a bit for the matting – instead of using only design paper, I mixed it with cream colored cardstock, as I did for the Fairie Dust Gatefold Folio.
I also modified a few of the pages – Katja’s tutorial has a very fun feature with reveal cards for one of the pages, but I thought it wouldn’t really fit this paper collection, so I haven’t added those. I also made some very small changes to some of the other pages – it’s very interesting how different the album looks with a different paper collection.
The paper is Sun Kissed by Graphic 45. I love this collection and its bright and happy colors and I used papers from the 12 x 12 and 8 x 8 designer sheets, as well as a few pages from the 12 x 12 Patterns & Solids pads. I made this as a gift for a friend and I kept the covers and inside covers plain so she can decide how to decorate them once she starts adding pictures 🙂
I loved making this album, but for the time being I think I will stick to smaller albums and folios 🙂
Here is a flip through and a few more photos with the pages:
